Best Friend Poem

My best friend and I have always considered each other "best friends" but one day, shortly after we were in a HUGE fight, I was thinking about what it means to be best friends. I started to jot down my thoughts and this is what it turned into. Enjoy!

Best Friends

© Melissa Magaliff
Best Friends
The title we chose
But what does it mean to be “best friends”?
You should see each other every day?
Well that’s not true for you and me
Should silly little fights get in our way?
Only if that’s how it’s meant to be
Should we give?
Should we borrow?
Should we dance like there’s not tomorrow?
Secrets are traded
Privacy invaded
Hugs and smiles are shared
Tears are shed
Love is spread
We know that we both really cared
I smile, you smile
You cry, I cry
I wish, you wish
You die, I die
If you fall
I'll help you up
And if you call
I'll always pick up
Best Friends Forever
The promise we made
And I know in my heart
That it will never fade

  • This touched my heart tremendously. Just yesterday my oldest and dearest friend (30 yrs we have known each other) died suddenly at the age of 43. Since we live 3,000 miles apart now, we didn't see each other that often anymore , but it reminds me of our relationship so much. Fights, guys, good times, heartaches, memories....all of it, so much like us. I will miss her 4ever, we had the best times growing up together & I'll never have another friend like her again, I miss her so much, my heart aches, & I never got to say goodbye. Thank-you for this poem, means so much.

  • My best friend of 4 years, who in middle school would stand up for people bullying me, started ignoring me because I went from public school to Cyber school. I have new best friends but I still miss her and we never talk anymore.

  • Me and my best friend have been together for only a year and a half, but we are still friends! Lately we had gotten into a fight, and I apologized 'cause I started it. To this day, me and her have never yelled or fought. The thought of losing each other, is one we both cannot bear!
